April on Freedom Porn

From Freedom Porn

Good time of the day and revolutionary greetings,

You are receiving this update because you have an account on FreedomPorn.org a site which distributes pornography for anarchists and activists. If you are interested in the previous updates which were sent out please see http://www.freedomporn.org/smut/Freedom_Porn:updates

For the reasons of transparency not only the updates, but also the public statements ( http://www.freedomporn.org/smut/Freedom_Porn:public_statements ) were all mirrored to the site, so now everybody can see what is going on with Freedom Porn, where it is heading, and hopefully be inspired to either join our community or start their own similar projects. If somebody is simply interested in looking at the history of the porn on this site, one can look at http://www.freedomporn.org/smut/Freedom_Porn:top_videos, which presents top 5 video downloads on the site going back almost to the very beginning.

And speaking about the download ratings, there are some interesting things that took place in April. Firstly, weʼve had more than 2000 downloads in a single month, something that didnʼt happen since on 2011 June 18 weʼve had 5707 downloads in a single day, thanks to http://www.freedomporn.org/smut/Video:Alexander_Ahimsa_-_In_the_Airport which has generated a lot of talk on the internet about our site (this video holds a very strong first place ever since). Secondly, another contributor has managed to make it to the top 5 videos, thatʼs Richard the Wanker with his http://www.freedomporn.org/smut/Video:Richard_the_Wanker_-_wanking_for_Peter_and_Laura

There are some interesting developments in other statistical areas of the site, which may be of interest to those who are more techy among us. Google reports that there were more than 1000 clicks on our site for the simple query of “porn” (and then there are other search engines too), and that is quite an accomplishment, since itʼs truly impossible to optimise a site for such a generic search. Also more and more people are actively searching for the phrase “freedom porn”, which means that they are looking specifically for our site, and donʼt just come here accidentally.

But enough about the statistics, there are other news of the growing Freedom Porn community:

We have a new user, a self‐identified “woman of many talents”, http://www.freedomporn.org/smut/User:Tasty_Tina please go check out her site ( http://tinakellyrussell.com/ ). It is clear that our community is in great need of somebody who has such a wide range of skills and abilities.

Our site has gotten its very first home‐made pornographic cartoon, please see http://www.freedomporn.org/smut/Video:Volodya_-_sexy_колобки All those with the artistic asperations are encouraged to try to make something like this yourselves. It is very easy and the process itself is quite sexy and liberating. Should you come up with the technical issues converting sequence of images into a video, do not worry, we (the admins) can always help you with that.

A new category, which now has only a single contribution, but will definitely be expanded more, has been created at http://www.freedomporn.org/smut/Category:blasphemy That will be of interest to all those who want to see some sort of anti‐religious propaganda and sexual content at the very same time.

New licence templates were added, mostly to make it easier to mirror sexual content which has been deleted or is proposed for deletion on Wikimedia Commons. Now besides Free Art License and public domain we also have CC‑PD, CC0, CC‑BY‑SA‑3.0 and CC‑BY‑2.0 templates which people can potentially use. To make a choice of the licence easier a plugin for Mediawiki sortware has been written, making a selection of the licence template possible right at the moment of the upload, so no more troubles about forgetting to specify the template when contributing. You will still have to specify the date of the creation of the work manually, however, but we will be working on that as well.

And donʼt think that we are hiding the tools that get developed for our project, we wish to encourage the culture of sharing and the code/instructions for these can now be found at http://www.freedomporn.org/smut/Freedom_Porn:free_technology As the development continues more tools will be available there. Hopefully some other projects, pornographic or not, will find this a useful resource.

Finally, as always, we welcome all the help that you can offer us. If you can make porn or erotica that is freely licenced, please do; but even if you canʼt we do need help with spreading of the word. Even if the only thing that you are able to do is to talk to your friends about the site and give them a link, that will help a great deal. Donʼt forget that we are a community and if you help the project you are helping yourselves.

P.S. Tomorrow is the May Day, a great day to do something that matters in this world!
